Nevada Sports Betting

Nevada Sports Betting

Legal sports betting is obviously not a new development for Nevada. In fact, if anything it has hurt the Nevada sports betting market as they lost what was a nation-wide monopoly.

Seemingly overnight, the state went from an industry-standard to a laggard in the industry. Their current mobile betting laws prohibit competition from the industry’s top sportsbook and, as a result, the product available to NV residents is a step below what we find in a state like New Jersey. Below are all the details for the current Nevada sports betting law.

Top Nevada Sportsbook Apps for 2020

As we mentioned in the open, Nevada essentially godfathered in the brick-and-mortar sportsbooks in the state when they legalized mobile sports betting. This makes it impossible for sportsbooks like DraftKings, FanDuel, and PointsBet to enter the NV and LV markets. As such, the complete list of sportsbooks and sportsbook apps available in NV looks much different from the typical states that have legalized sports betting.
